Jesus Christ did not sin

 

There are some who would say that Jesus sinned.

While he was tempted, and could have sinned, he chose not to sin. Jesus Christ never sinned.

Hebrews 4:15

For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.

2 Cor 5:21

He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

1 Peter 2:22

He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth.

1 John 3:5

You know that he appeared to take away sins, and in him there is no sin.


1 Peter 1:19

But with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.

Hebrews 9:14

How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

Some want to say Jesus had a sin nature. In fact, he did not.

Sin entered the world through Adam, not Eve – even though it was Eve who first sinned.
Romans 5:12

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned


As such, Jesus did not inherit a sinful nature (Which comes through the father, not the mother).

So Jesus was born without sin. He was born with God as HIS father.

Luke 1:30-35


30 The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. 31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; 33 and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” 34 Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?” 35 The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.

So then: Jesus did not have a sin nature and did not sin. He was without blemish. Perfect.
